  3. Taking 8 hours to complete an OCD house cleaning mission
  4. Deciding at the last minute to “run” to the mall or “grab” something to eat
  5. Waking up at 7:30 am and still making it to work by 8
  6. Staying up until midnight and knowing I’d have enough sleep to function the next day
  7. Spending weekends down the cape or in new hampshire for drinking weekends
  8. Going to the gym 2 hours almost every day

    uh oh . . . I pee a little bit every time I laugh now and I’m not even close to knocked up yet! I also have hairy legs. Poor Mr. Joe doesn’t have much to look forward to I guess 🙂
